Curated passages of forest green, indigo, and ochre emerge from a patterned ocean of cerulean blue in this large acrylic canvas. Two slender bands through the centre in maroon and green hold and balance the overall composition. Created in 1981, this painting was created at the height of Fox's Venice period. "I am a painter, that's all I've done for thirty years. I've never believed in talent, only in interest, and in work. Art is a terrifically long-term thing. You find out about yourself first. The rest comes later, sometimes much later."- John Fox (1927-2008) attended McGill University, the École des Beaux-arts de Montréal and the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, School of Art and Design. In 1952, he studied at the Slade School of Art, University of London, followed by two years in Florence and Paris. In the 1970s, Fox began to spend time in Venice where his early work, inspired by European Intimism, gave way to large abstract canvases that explored the light-filled colours of the Mediterranean. Fox’s artwork is held in many private, corporate and public collections including the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria, the MacKenzie Art Gallery, the Art Gallery of Hamilton, Museum London, the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, the National Gallery of Canada, the Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal.
